About "Ruaha Wilderness 1"

As a child and young man I drew pictures literally every day. Later as my career progressed I started neglecting my drawing. My paintings became laborious affairs that sometimes takes weeks to complete.

One of my "resolutions" for the new year was to make more small paintings. I first do monochrome, alla prima sketches, and then overpaint them with oils. (I did most of the painting on these paintings while sitting at our favourate restaurant in town, having one cup of coffee after the other. But I loved every moment of doing them! (And the coffee is great! [0x1][0x1]). (They still take surprisingly long to do. Each one requiring at least 3 sessions of about 3 hours each).

And now another frustration - so many of us are familiar with - trying to take photos of the work! And that while I'm not a professional photographer... And the photos somehow just "pales" compared to the original paintings.

My subject? Just another one of those "small" rivers...
But it's often in the small things that I find joy and beauty... ...

The little paintings are all 30cm x 40cm each. Oils on canvas.
